Basshole Farm (Skillman, New Jersey)
Date:
2003
Notes:
Before 1983, the old farmhouse was situated on 25 acres overlooking rolling fields. Basshole Farm, "a country garden," adapts to its surroundings. The cutting garden is centered on a stone grave marker in the shape of an obelisk. A perennial garden on the west side of the house features an espalier apple tree. A shade garden at the rear of the house leans down a gentle slope to a small stone bridge across a meandering stream. The view of the fields beyond is softened and framed by ferns and wildflowers. An old stone spring house sits across the lawn from the house and fits in the curve of the sloping lawn. A bed of daylilies blooms nearby . Hostas lead the eye toward the meadow beyond where cattle graze.
